This Week

I keep forgetting what day it is this week.

I also decided to reintroduce caffeine.

THAT’S the kind of week it’s been.

So far, I’ve:

Finished up an Alice order.

Image

Made a new Dieselpunk military capelet.

Image

Created a super ruffly red and white striped choker.

Image

Made a beautiful silk brocade capelet.

Image

And spent many, many hours putting together sketches, images, prices and a full proposal for a really cool job. (SPOILER:  I didn’t get it–but I did give myself a ton of new ideas for future offerings and a potential photo shoot)

Image

I feel like I should have more accomplished by today….maybe I need to give myself some slack?

Laissez les bons temps rouler!

It’s Mardi Gras day!  And it’s raining and freezing cold out!  And I’m under the weather!

All that adds up to me, a heating pad, a blanket, some coffee and photo editing/listing of newbies for the shop.

Just listed seven (SEVEN!!!) new capelets over in the etsy shop:  https://www.etsy.com/shop/TrappedInTimeDesigns

Here’s to hoping it’s warmer in YOUR neck of the woods!

Bustlin’

New in the shop over the weekend:

Image

The bustles are all being offered on a made-to-order basis, too.

I’m trying to beef up the shop in between orders.  I have a whole stack of things that are ready to be sewn up, and I try to add to it every weekend, as well as subtract from it (ie: sew things up) every week.  Problems only arise when I’ve fallen out of love with whatever idea I had had when I cut whatever-it-is out.  Then….well, then it goes to the bottom of the stack.

Shoot III

This is the last “post pictures and leave immediately” post for a little while, promise.  The last of the images from the recent shoot:

Sneak Peek

I just realized that this is my 100th post here on the ol’ blog.  Last week I got the “congratulations on your 1 year anniversary”, too.  Which took my entirely by surprise.  Granted, there were MONTHS (and months) of inactivity….but it feels like just a little while ago that I started this up.

I had intended a blog post reflecting on the year, blather blather blather, blah blah remembering, blah.  But then, THEN–my friend Britt of Underexposed Photography (https://www.facebook.com/brittsmithphoto) just released the first sneak peek from last week’s Dieselpunk/Steampunk shoot–and I’m pretty much in love with it.   My brain can’t really compute anything more than “PREEETTTTTYYYYYY!!” after seeing it, so big long rambling post about the past year has been sidetracked (you can send your thanks to Britt).
